ATTENTION TO ALL RILAYA SHIPPERS!!!! I NEED YOU ALL TO SEE THIS!!!!!!! BECAUSE I AM FREAKING!!!!! Okay so I was watching Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels, when suddenly I noticed something! This episode was written by Michael Jacobs aka the creator of the show aka the one who decides what ships are endgame……. And what line is spoken in Mr. Squirrels? What line does every Rilaya shipper love? What line is spoken by Auggie? They’re Riley and Maya, THEY’RE GOING TO MARRY EACH OTHER!!!!!!! MICHAEL JACOBS WROTE THAT LINE! HE IS THE ONE WHO DECIDED THAT LINE WOULD BE WRITTEN! THE ONE PERSON WHO DECIDED WHO DOES MARRY EACH OTHER WROTE THAT LINE! I AM FREAKING OUT! THAT FEELS LIKE ALL THE CONFIRMATION WE NEED RIGHT THERE! AND I AM NOT OKAY! I AM FREAKING OUT! BECAUSE OMG OMG OMG OMG…. RILAYA IS REAL, RILAYA IS ENDGAME, RILAYA IS GOING TO MARRY EACH OTHER! THE CREATOR OF THE SHOW TOLD US HIMSELF…. THIS FOR REAL GUYS, I HAVE THE PROOF RIGHT UP THERE! OMG OMG OMG. ITS REAL, RILAYA IS REAL AND I CAN’T EVEN DEAL

ok. here’s the problem I have with how the show is being written atm. 

Throughout the entirety of GM She Don’t Like Me, lucaya is particularly framed as a couple. A lot of reaction shots, seating arrangements etc were focused on them. Now obviously the scene just after the opening sequence Lucas takes Riley over her shoulder, and you could argue whether it was supposed to be in a romantic setting or whether the pairs were purely friendly but regardless, that is the only physical interaction we’ve had of them since Ski Lodge, and the last physical contact moment they have in S3. Now, I can’t speak for rucas shippers here, but I know if lucaya or riarkle was being written this way, I’d be upset. 

So, to Michael Jacobs. If you are going to continously drag on an arc through two seasons which the majority of people watching your show grew tired of and finally reach a pinnacle where a decision is made & a couple has decided to move forward into a full-fledged relationship, THEN GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO WORK WITH. Why waste all this time and patience of fans watching only to give them an unsatisfactory couple who don’t do anything for the majority of the season & then have them break up in the finale? Regardless of how I ship lucaya & riarkle/rilaya, rucas deserves better treatment and frankly me as a viewer should be rewarded for continuously watching the show and being attached to the characters, rather than be forced fed awkward smiles, almost zero to no physical contact & clunky dialogue between the supposed “main couple” I mean, just get your shit together MJ. 

I just think this picture says it all: 

(why do this to your fans? ffs)

Ilha Das Flores

Alright family, I love you and and each and every one of you contributes something valuable to the fandom.

I wanted to make this post before the live Girl Meets Ilha Das Flores taping.

Please manage your expectations for this episode.

Girl Meets Sweet Sixteen was an absolutely amazing episode and had something for almost everyone. Girl Meets Ilha Das Flores is also written by Michael Jacobs. It’s going to be a great one, fam. I promise.

I think we should be careful of expecting huge changes in canon relationships. It’s a twenty-two minute episode. We aren’t going to see multiple couples break up and multiple new couples get together. I honestly doubt we will even see one new couple get together.

What I’m saying is that this one episode is not the be all and end all of Girl Meets World. If Riarkle or Lucaya or whoever you ship doesn’t become canon in this episode it doesn’t mean they never will.

I think this episode will bring a lot of emotions for every character and maybe even some major realizations or discoveries about their feelings. That’s a huge step towards becoming canon.

I don’t want anyone to be disappointed or discouraged by what transpires in this episode. It’s one episode out of many. If you’re worried about a season four, have faith that the show runners will end the show in a way that keeps with their overall narrative. They won’t leave Riley/Lucas or Josh/Maya together if they planned to break them up.

I see a lot of people expecting Farkle to blow and big Riarkle things to happen. I would love if that were the case. I think it’s possible and even probable that we will see some Riarkle realizations, on the part of Riley or Farkle or both of them. I just hope people aren’t expecting too much out of one twenty-two minute episode in terms of the romantic relationships on the show.

Whatever happens, trust that it is part of the bigger plan.

I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT when r!cas shippers say that riley won’t be okay with lucaya because cory wasn’t okay with shawn + topanga for multiple reasons

1. cory and topanga’s relationship was WAY more serious and developed in that point in time. riley + lucas have gone on like 2 dates and have an “unofficial” thing. corpanga actually built up their relationship and had a steady, sturdy friendship before dating (what maybe 2/3 seasons before they started thinking about each other romantically). while r!cus are very good friends, they don’t have the foundation that corpanga had (YET) for this argument to be valid. you just can’t compare the two at this point in time, they just aren’t understand the same circumstances

2. riley is her own person!! it’s been said MULTIPLE TIMES that the plot for girl meets world won’t necessarily be the same as boy meets world. she won’t exactly follow in her fathers footsteps (just like maya doesn’t exactly follow shawn’s. i.e. maya was the one who showed an interest in becoming a teacher)

3. riley is not written to be like cory. michael jacobs even said in an interview that riley is written to be more like eric while auggie is written to be more like cory.

4. MAYA + RILEY HAVE A STRONGER FRIENDSHIP THAN YOU GUYS ARE GIVING THEM CREDIT FOR. a guy. won’t. break. them. up. sure, riley will be hurt for a while (i don’t doubt this, she really liked lucas) maybe even very confused (in relation to the “brother” thing) but she’ll get over it. because maya is her best friend and she would want her to be happy. riley will be able to grow/learn from this and it will open her eyes, allowing her to mature and find someone who will treat her like the princess she is (aka farkle or charlie)

so PLEASE stop using this excuse because it’s ridiculous

All right. Listen up.

No one is forcing you to watch this show. No one. You are not Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange.

If you don’t like the direction the show is taking, you literally do not have to turn it on.

If you’ve only been watching out of the hope for a specific ship and it’s not the one that happened, you can walk away. I’m sure if things change you’ll hear about it and you can come running back. 

If you think your favorite character is being “mistreated” (and I use quotation marks because while everyone on the show has problems, they also get treated incredibly well. They have wonderful lives that the average kid their age only dreams of) then you can walk away. 

If you don’t like the main character of the show and find her personality not to your liking, then you damn well better walk away because no amount of bitching is going to change who the show is being written about. 

The only person whose whims the show is written to directly please and satisfy is Michael Jacobs. It’s his show. Yes, he wants a happy audience, but the audience is broad, and he pleases a lot more people being true to what he wants and creating a quality product then telling a story he doesn’t believe in.

So I’m sorry if you don’t like it, but that’s life. You’re not that special and you can get your entertainment elsewhere. 

Nobody is forcing you to watch it, so stop trying to ruin everyone else’s enjoyment just because you’re bitter and petty. Walk away and find a show that better suits your needs if it makes you so angry. The show isn’t going to change because you throw temper tantrums like spoiled toddlers. 

GM Boy + GM Fish II

Remember how everyone except for Riley knew about the constantly dying goldfish? Check out how they cut to Maya shooting Riley a sort of “aw, honey”-type look when Miss Myzell announces that her goldfish died. Note also that Miss Myzell doesn’t seem too broken up about it…probably because she (like everyone else but Riley) knows that the class goldfish(es) have died several times over. And before anyone says “she said HER goldfish died, not the class goldfish!” please remember that Riley referred to Chelsea as “her” goldfish as well. 👍

Again, both episodes were written by Michael Jacobs himself. This man PLANS AHEAD and CALLS BACK with an insane amount of cleverness.
